I ordered the Sleek monaco palette through Jo's spree, and I am sure many of you are no stranger to Sleek makeup palettes. They are all pigmented, and always have new colors. Most importantly, the price point of these palettes are also very attractive [under $18 with shipping]. Even though I love all my palettes, I must admit that I have not been using the last few Sleek palettes I purchased. But does that stop me from buying more? No! :)
Swatched in the same order as the palette
In the third swatch picture, I also swatch NARS China Blue together with Midnight Garden, and NARS Blondie with Sand Walker.
Close, close but not exact dupes.
The blue and teal shade really stood out to me, and I decide to use the palette when I was preparing to go out after taking these pictures. I think the blues kind of go with the prints on my shirt.
All colors breakdown and products used will be listed at the end of this entry.
Mini Raves = I will eventually get round to doing proper blog entries to these products I am loving.
Shiseido White Lucent Spot Control Base UV [current fave primer, evens out my skin and offers protection like no other!]
2. Bumble & Bumble Styling Lotion [gives some friction to my fine & smooth hair, making my hair more voluminous but not sticky and not heavy at all, that explains the 'textured' messy look you see in these pictures]
3. Avene Thermal Spring Water spray [absolutely amazing for setting my makeup, freshen up my face/ skin, giving it a nice soothing glow]
